Cyclic Redundancy Check??

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by ysr_racer, Feb 1, 2005.

  1. I'm trying to move a file from an old floppy to my PC but I keep getting a "Cyclic Redundancy Check". Any ideas on how to fix this or get around it?

    That means your data or the floppy itself has become damaged. Have you tried just copying it to your desktop using drag & drop? If it still doesn't want to be read, the next step is to grab some apps.

    This app can help you to discern the cause of the problem, while BadCopy Pro will extract all the readable data from the disk.

    The only thing wrong with BCP is that, although it will theoretically try to guess at the content and replace it properly, if it can't get a handle on it, BadCopy will 'fill in the blanks' on its own, putting in random 'filler' data where the unreadable parts were.

    But it WILL rip anything it can see...how useful it will end up being is anyone's guess. CRCheck might be able to tell you beforehand if 1% or 50% of the diskette is b0rked.
